Police caution residents after Murrysville vehicle break-ins
Murrysville police are urging residents to be vigilant in locking their cars and removing any valuables after a series of break-ins.
Sgt. Tom Kusinsky said Thursday that on Wednesday morning 10 residents reported thefts from 13 cars in the municipality's Manordale Farms and Westmoreland Farms sections.
Primarily small items were taken, Kusinsky said, including loose change, a purse, a wallet, and several expensive pairs of sunglasses.
There was no visible damage to the cars, Kusinsky said, although the vehicles' owners reported that their cars were locked.
“We are asking people first and foremost to lock their vehicles. If you can put your car in a garage at night, do so,” Kusinsky said.
He also advised residents to remove any items of value from their cars and leave on exterior lights if possible.
“If you see or hear anything suspicious at night, call. Don't wait until morning,” Kusinsky said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
